General information

The grey gene causes progressive depigmentation (fading) of the hair and is considered to be the “strongest” of all coat colour modifying genes. The depigmentation process may last for years, but once the hair is depigmented, the original colour will never return.

Clinical features

A horse that inherits a Grey coat colour can be born in any colour. Often those horses become completely white by the age of 6-8 years, others will keep tiny non-faded spots (also called fleabites).
